Be encouraged

Things do not always go as planned and some days are better than other days. On the not so great days it is important to find hope and hang on to it. If you are having a really bad day sometimes the hope will last like 5 mins. Well guess what? You just have to go find yourself some more hope. Our loved ones are there for support but I think it’s good to get into the habit of encouraging yourself. Do things that make you smile, try to think positive and focus on the good that God has done. You have to fight the good fight…fight it to win. The devil is so upset when you continually make the decision to encourage yourself.One thing that I always find to be encouraging is reading inspirational quotes. This week I wanted to share some quotes that I love.

There will come a time when you believe that everything is finished.That will be the beginning. -Louis L’Amour

God can do wonders with a broken heart it you give him all the pieces-Victor Alfsen

Faith isn’t the ability to believe long and far into the misty future. It’s simply taking God at His word and taking the next step.-Joni Earekson Tada

To believe in God starts with a conclusion about Him,develops into confidence in Him, and then matures into a conversation with Him.-Stuart Briscoe

Faith goes up the stairs that love has made and looks out the window which hope has opened.-Charles H. Spurgeon

It is not what we do that matters, but what a sovereign God chooses to do through us.God doesn’t want our success: He wants us. -Charles Colson

Our faith does not lie in trusting God to stop the storm but trusting Him to enable us to walk through the storm.-Jill Broscoe

If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.-Flava Weedn

Patience with others is love.Patience with self is hope. Patience with God is faith.-Adel Bestavros

God loves us not because of who we are,but because of who he is.-Anonymous

I hope that these encouraging words will bring a smile to your face as they have to mine. In your quiet moments take time to reflect on how awesome God is and how much good he has done and WILL do for you.

One day at a time,
